Popular culture and festivals are very connected with the economy and the society that developed in these high lands. The religious fervour is super imposed with the profane acts, giving as a result a compendium of deep-rooted holidays and traditions that have come to us with hardly significant changes.

Winter festivals

Spring festivals

Summer festivals

Note: The Encamisada de Estercuel, the enchantment and the magic of fire.

Very near the start of THE SILENT ROUTE is the locality of Estercuel.  There every year, the weekend nearest to 19 January, the festival of Sanantones is celebrated in which the procession of “La Encamisada” stands out, in which the festival-goers, mounted on their horses, run through the streets of the village avoiding the fires. The festival is completed with a series of ceremonies.
